“Incredible!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

This was our first dog sled tour and it is a MUST DO if you are visiting the beautiful town of Canmore. We went on Sunday April 13th for the 2 hr Powder Hound Express tour and absolutely loved it! The company is family owned and they are extremely friendly and humorous and are obviously very devoted to their dogs. We enjoyed learning how to drive our own dog sled team and playing with their friendly four legged furry friends. The mountain view on the tour was spectacular! This is an absolute must especially if you're a dog lover and an outdoor enthusiast! I would recommend this to everyone, we'll be back!

“Absolutely awesome”

Anyone wanting to experience a Dog Sled ride, you must go with Snowy Owl tours, I researched all the others, what made these guys different was their expertise, their respect for their dogs and the attention to the customers needs, this was better than winning the lottery, the hilarious instruction just before running your own Dog Sled team was absolutely hilarious, the instructions given by the guides was second to none and the experience well, you must check it out for yourselves, you will not be disappointed. I would like to thank all the team members at Snowy Owl dog sled tours a big thank you for a wonderful experience

“Wonderful addition to our bucket list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Staff we're amazing including the dogs. Worth the experience. We will remember this for many years. Both of us had an opportunity to drive the sled and team. The 2 hour trip was a fabulous opportunity to learn about the types of sled dogs and enjoy the scenery. So peaceful. A thousand recommendations.

“One for the bucket list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

What a great company, absolutely nothing you can complain about, one of the most professional tours, we have ever been on anywhere in the world.
The girls in the booking office are helpful, friendly, and efficient.
Great coach transfer up into the mountains, fantastic views.
The instructions are crystal clear as to how to drive the dogs, and really made into a show by the guides.
The highlight is to stand, and be allowed to drive these magnificent dogs over a cross country route, it's absolutely thrilling.
Well done to the staff and company, we would recommend this tour to anyone.....
Go on, have a go....
